"With this solution we can rapidly scale network capacity to deliver reliable 10G, 40G, and 100G services to meet the needs of both B2B and B2G customers of Akado Telecom, including banks, service providers and government organizations."

"Akado's deployment of the DTN-X platform enables the company to meet the demands of the growing Russian market with speed and efficiency," said Chris Champion, vice president, EMEA sales, Infinera. "We are pleased to work with Akado on enhancing their network and committed to helping our Russian customers succeed in this market."
